What Do You Mean: Code-Meshing and the Disconnect between Sociolinguists and Post-Secondary English Educators
Last semester for my final project in Intro to Professional Writing, I decided to conduct a research paper about code-meshing and linguistics in lower-level English education courses. Specifically, I focused on the seeming disconnect between linguistics and English education at large in terms of implementing and utilizing translingual practices, like code-meshing, in classroom settings. It was because of this project that I even became aware of transligualism in general, and thus began my journey into incorporating linguistics in my future courses.
On April 16, 2021, I presented my research findings at the Student Success in Writing Conference, hosted by Georgia Southern University. It was my first-ever official conference presentation, and I’m happy to share this information here on this platform as well.
